Few years ago I put my Harley bagger on the dyno at Gibraltar's bike night. There was a guy ahead of me with a chopper bragging about how he had 150hp, and had the bike up to 175mph once..... he gets on the dyno- 53hp.
Mine was 79hp.
Next was a new Triumph Rocket 3 that was so quiet you could hear the tire squeaking on the drum during each gear shift. 165hp.
